I'm trying to get up to shape on the music production side and therefore I'm trying to find accessible software instruments or "softsynths" that sounds better than the standard pack for GarageBand. Yeah, I know, I should really get out of GarageBand soon if I'm going to make professional productions, and the plan is to buy protools within the next couple of months. But by now, the only thing I have is GB, and I need something that sounds great, and that I can use together with VoiceOver.
I've installed the kontakt player and a few instruments from Native Instruments, but the interface isn't accessible at all. So the work around is to have a sighted person helping me to set up an instrument or 4, and then save it as a preset in GB, so I can find it my self in the list of instruments. The same thing goes for Addictive Drums. Not accessible at all, but it just sounds so great, that I got to annoy some of my friends to help me to set up a few custom kits and then save it in GB as a preset.
But I really would like to find pluggins that I can handle and edit myself, and that has a high-end quality to them. And I guess that accessibility of the interface will stay the same after I've gotten protools, cause it's probably the same edit window that opens for e.g. kontakt player or addictive drums as in GB. The only difference is probably that protools uses VST pluggins and GB can only use AU... Have I got it right?
I'm really hoping that some of you clever people out there might have some experience with this, and may have a few options to suggest for me...
Thanks in advance ;)
